The business will provide clients with strategic business advice in relation to all aspects of governance, culture and conduct and also provide guidance in relation to specific regulatory change projects such as BREXIT implementation and the transition from IBOR. This is an exciting time for the BD Manager to be joining as the firm intends to grow the business rapidly into a significant international business which complements its existing services but also opens new opportunities. The role holder will be responsible for day-to-day business development support working closely with the CEO, Managing Directors and Executive Directors. You will be helping to drive the implementation of the business strategy and client development plans as well as leading on pitches for the business and contributing content to broader cross-practice and cross-border pitches. You will also be originating and coordinating practical marketing support for profile raising activities, researching market opportunities, managing the process of experience collection, credentials and CVs and other ad-hoc business development support. As such, this is a broad role providing the opportunity to apply skills and experience right across the marketing, BD, CRM and communications mix in a new business.
Pre-requisites for this role include a good degree or equivalent and preferably post-graduate qualifications. A proven track record in a similar professional services or consulting environment including substantial relevant business development, marketing and communications experience at an equivalent level is essential as is an ability work to deadlines, juggle multiple projects and deliver under pressure. A commercial and ambitious individual with an enthusiasm to develop an in-depth understanding of the consulting market and practice in terms of the market, deals, key players, competition and the actual structures and approaches involved in this area, the BD Manager must possess a strong ability to motivate, develop and inspire both team and fee-earners to deliver business goals. In addition, an understanding of regulatory and corporate governance requirements would be beneficial but not essential.
